How is your rear wheel bearing doing?
You need to do few steps to find out where the sound is coming from...
-Find an empty road, and drive down at that critical speed.
-shift to N and see if the sound changes
-increase/decrease speed, how does the sound change?
-wobble the steering wheel, does the sound go away/ get louder?
-turn at high speed left, then right, does the sound get worse/better
- jack the rear end, (at a shop maybe), turn off ASR, then shift to D, let the wheels turn, can you hear loud noise at one wheel near the axle?
